Un squelette de mammouth a été mis au jour en Seine-et-Marne, dans une carrière de Changis-sur-Marne. Si les ossements ont été découverts cet été, il a fallu attendre le 6 novembre pour qu'ils soient présentés.

Une nouvelle exoplanète de la taille de la Terre pourrait abriter la vie

Une nouvelle exoplanète de la taille de la Terre pourrait abriter la vie | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Des astronomes ont découvert la première exoplanète de la taille de la Terre située en zone habitable 


Les astronomes et les astrophysiciens la cherchent comme le Saint Graal, cette planète qui, comme la nôtre, présenterait des conditions favorables à la vie - notamment la présence d’eau liquide à sa surface.


Quelques-unes des exoplanètes observées ces dernières années sont déjà sur les rangs, comme Gliese-851d ou Kepler-62f. C’est une nouvelle candidate que vient de découvrir une équipe internationale d’astronomes, dont trois chercheurs du Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Bordeaux.


Non seulement Kepler-186f gravite dans la zone habitable de son étoile, mais elle est d’une taille presque identique à celle de la Terre, une première. De part sa dimension, elle a toutes les chances d’être une planète rocheuse. Une condition sine qua non pour que de l’eau liquide puisse exister à sa surface.

New Cancer Vaccine Approach Directly Targets Dendritic Cells

New Cancer Vaccine Approach Directly Targets Dendritic Cells | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

"Celldex Therapeutics announced today that final data from its Phase 1 study of CDX-1401 in solid tumors, including long-term patient follow-up, have been published inScience Translational Medicine.


The data demonstrate robust antibody and T cell responses and evidence of clinical benefit in patients with very advanced cancers and suggest that CDX-1401 may predispose patients to better outcomes on subsequent therapy with checkpoint inhibitors. CDX-1401 is an off-the-shelf vaccine consisting of a fully human monoclonal antibody with specificity for the dendritic cell receptor DEC-205 linked to the NY-ESO-1 tumor antigen. The vaccine is designed to activate the patient's immune system against cancers that express the tumor marker NY-ESO-1.


While the function of NY-ESO-1 continues to be explored, references in the literature suggest that its expression might reflect the acquisition of properties that cancers find useful, such as immortality, self-renewal, migratory ability and the capacity to invade."

 

Editor's note: Cancer vaccines like CDX-1401 are a type of immunotherapy, meaning that they boost a patient's own immune system to fight cancer. CDX-1401 is able to attack tumor cells because the tumor cells have a molecule called NY-ESO-1 that CDX-1401 recognizes. We recently published a story about another treatment that is meant for patients whose tumors have NY-ESO-1.

Nanotechnology researchers produce new anti-cancer drug from turmeric


The compound is made of curcumin found in the extract of turmeric, and has desirable physical and chemical stability and prevents the proliferation of cancer cells.In this drug, curcumin with high efficiency (approximately 87%) was loaded in the polymeric nanocarrier, and it created a spherical structure with the size of 140 nm.

The drug has high physical and chemical stability. The drug was used successfully in laboratory conditions in the treatment of a type of aggressive tumor in the central nervous system, called glioblastoma (GBM).

Google invents smart contact lens with built-in camera: Superhuman Terminator-like vision here we come | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Google has invented a new smart contact lens with an integrated camera. By virtue of being part of the contact lens, the camera would naturally follow your gaze, allowing for a huge range of awesome applications, from the basis of a bionic eye system for blind and visually impaired people, through to early warning systems (the camera spots a hazard before your brain does), facial recognition, and superhuman powers (telescopic and infrared/night vision). In related news, Google Glass is publicly available today in the US for one day only (still priced at $1500).

Scientists Discover Evidence of a New Type of Matter: the Tetraquark

Scientists Discover Evidence of a New Type of Matter: the Tetraquark | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The recent identification of a long-theorized particle is strong evidence of a new form of matter: the Tetraquark.


With the existence of tetraquarks, it is possible for neutrons within the core to interact strongly enough to create tetraquarks. This could even lead to the production of pentaquarks and hexaquarks, or even that quarks could interact individually without being bound into color neutral particles. This would produce a hypothetical object known as a quark star.

US Navy deploys laser weapon system that’s fired with ‘video game-like controller’

US Navy deploys laser weapon system that’s fired with ‘video game-like controller’ | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The US Navy has announced that it is moving ahead with plans to deploy the first ever combat laser weapon. Late this summer, USS Ponce -- a fairly unextraordinary amphibious ship -- will be outfitted with the Laser Weapon System (LaWS).


.

LaWS will be put through some at-sea testing in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf, after which it will be capable of shooting down drones or disabling small attack boats (including suicide bombing missions) at an energy cost of just $1 per shot. Rather fittingly for a futuristic weapons system, LaWS will be fired using a 'video game-like controller.'

A luminescent nanoparticle to advance photodynamic cancer therapy

A luminescent nanoparticle to advance photodynamic cancer therapy


A University of Texas at Arlington physicist working to create a luminescent nanoparticle to use in security-related radiation detection may have instead happened upon an advance in photodynamic cancer therapy.Wei Chen, professor of physics and co-director of UT Arlington’s Center for Security Advances Via Applied Nanotechnology, was testing a copper-cysteamine complex created in his lab when he discovered unexplained decreases in its luminescence, or light emitting power, over a time-lapse exposure to X-rays.

Looking further, he found that the nanoparticles, called Cu-Cy, were losing energy as they emitted singlet oxygen – a toxic byproduct that is used to damage cancer cells in photodynamic therapy.
